Historical NoteReturn to Top

According to a photocopy of an undated newspaper article titled "George Tabor: The Life and Times of An Original Wallace Pioneer" and written by Nancy Lee Hanson, Jesse Tabor (George Tabor's father) "moved from Colorado to Murray in the Gold Rush of 1884 as a teenager, but left for Burke when the strike at the Tiger mine was made. He and a partner went into business in a store there. Mr. Tabor opened his first store in Wallace in 1890 at the West One Bank building site." "When the Tabor store first opened in Wallace it was primarily a stationery store but also carried fresh fruit, scarce in the late 1880's and early 1900's. The business grew, and they began to carry records and photographs. They sold postcards with photographs printed in the store's dark room. George Tabor was responsible for starting the photography department. Later he expanded into home appliances, paint and wallpaper. In the past 40 years he carried electronic equipment, art and office supplies and engineering and draftmen's equipment."

Newspaper correspondent Hanson cited another article written by Billie Shewmaker and published in the North Idaho Press in 1980. According to Hanson, Shewmaker wrote that George Tabor's love of photography began when he was a young child. The Tabor store underwent a few building changes. The original tabor store, in the West One Bank building, burned down in an unknown year and the store was then replaced in the same location with a brick building. In 1910, a banking firm pursued buying the building and Tabor's store moved across the street into a wooden building which George believed was the oldest building in Wallace. In 1933, this wooden structure burned down in a fire. It's unclear at what point, and at what location, George Tabor inherited the store from his father, Jesse. The only clear fact is that George Tabor ended up selling his building – the Tabor and Pfirman building – and retired in 1980.

Other Descriptive InformationReturn to Top

George Tabor married Lydia Edmiston (b. 1896 – d. 1982) on October 22, 1916 in Latah County, Idaho. They shared one daughter together, Jean Tabor (b. 1922 – d. 2001). George had one sibling, his sister Kathryn E. Tabor (b. 1902 – d. 1969), and their parents were Jesse William Tabor (b. 1854 – d. 1939) and Catherine Ann Robertson (b. 1869 – d. 1932) who got married on January 23, 1894 in Shoshone County, Idaho. Beyond managing the Tabor Store and taking photographs, George Tabor was an active member of many local community groups, including the Shoshone Lodge, AF&M, Order of Eastern Star, Calam Temple of Shrine, Wallace Elks Club, Board of Trade, Kiwanis Club, and the Wallace Rotary Club (which he was president from 1949-1950).

Content DescriptionReturn to Top

The bulk of the collection contains film negatives and print photographs of Wallace, Idaho and the surrounding areas between the 1930s-1960s, heavily featuring downtown scenes, building, events, sports teams and leagues, and various (often unidentified) people. Mining images are also prominent in this collection, primarily mining facilities, equipment, and miners of the Hecla-Star Mine, Sunshine Mine, Lucky Friday Mine, Bunker Hill, Day Mine, Rock Creek Mine, Hercules Mine, and Morning Mine. There are a few logging scenes from the Wallace region. There are many images that feature buildings, events, and members of fraternal organizations such as the Benevolent Protective Order of Elks, Order of the Eastern Star of Idaho Grand Chapter, and the Fraternal Order of Eagles (Aerie #54) in Wallace. Finally, there are many images of disasters in the region, such as airplane crashes, floods, avalanches, landslides, and fires.

A small percentage of negatives and print photographs are signed in the bottom-middle or bottom-right corner with his handwritten signature, "Tabor's Photos." An even smaller percentage of photographs are stamped on the back with "Tabor's Photos." Only a small handful of photographs are signed on the bottom-middle or bottom-right corner with the name, "Barnard," suggesting that perhaps Tabor copied a few Barnard-Stockbridge photographs, which was common among photographers during that era.

Custodial History

According to another photocopy of a different undated newspaper titled "Treasure Trove of Photos Found in Basement of Tabor Building" written by Carol Roberts, the negatives and print photographs in this collection were found by the Lavigne Drug Group after they purchased the Tabor Building in the late 1970s and cleaned out the basement, discovering "photo negatives of pictures developed in the Tabor Building from 1933 to 1975." Dale Lavigne, president of Lavigne Drug Group and now-owner of the Tabor Building is quoted as explaining that "Tabor had a developing studio in the basement of the Tabor Building." According to the article, "when the building was purchased, they cleaned out the basement and his son Ron found the negatives, and stored them for safe keeping, but didn't think much about them. Later, Lavigne was having a conversation with his cousin, Dick Magnuson, a longtime Wallace resident and local historian who had worked at Tabor's as a high school student, helping develop film. He suggested to Lavigne that they donate the negatives to the University of Idaho in Moscow. Since these pictures span the years from 1933 to 1975, they are a continuation of the well-known Barnard-Stockbridge Collection, currently on file at the University of Idaho Library."

According to Dale Lavigne, "the pictures are a history of what went on during that time period, when George Tabor or one of his employees went out and took pictures of events happening in the area.
